DoD Trade Security Controls

Trade Security Controls (TSC) prevent illegal acquisition, exportation or other unauthorized transfers of defense and dual-use technology, goods, services and munitions into areas whose interests are adverse to the United States. Areas that have been designated by the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Commerce, or the Director of Foreign Assets Control.

  • DLA Form 1822 ( Secured PDF download to open) :  The End-Use Certificate, DLA Form 1822, is a bidding form where you indicate what your "end use" of the property will be, if you receive an award. It is generally required for items coded other than DEMIL Code of “A”. The catalog entry for that item will tell you if an end-use certificate is required. The form is required for property that is controlled. For example, it may require demilitarization by the customer, or an export license should the customer desire to ship it to another country.

    NOTE: The first time you bid on an item requiring end-use certification, a Trade Security Control check will be processed and can take up to 60 days. The Sales Contracting Officer (SCO) cannot award the contract until you have been cleared. During the initial clearance process, you may not be awarded an item for up to 2 months. Once you have obtained this clearance from Trade Security Controls, it is generally good for 5 years, but you still must submit an End-Use Certificate every time one is required. Once you're cleared, subsequent awards are quicker.
